In California, employers can choose to pay their employees based on commissions instead of or in addition to a salary. According to California employment law, any employer “who enters into a contract of employment involving commissions as a method of payment with an employee for services to be rendered within the state to put the contract in writing and to set forth the method by which the commissions are required to be computed and paid.” This means that, under California law, a contract is required between both the employee and employer for commissions based work. This contract must have detailed in it exactly how commissions are to be calculated and paid. If your employer has not held up their end of the contract and has not paid you for commissions you have earned, you need to hire an attorney. The employer should not only cover all unpaid commissions and attorney’s fees but may also be open to receiving fines or penalties from the state. Contact JML Law today in Long Beach at 818-610-8800.

Earning a paycheck based on commissions is hard work. California does have laws protecting employees who work on commissions. Employment laws in California state that, typically, your employer must pay you all wages on the last day of employment unless you did not give 72 hours’ notice to your employer. If a 72-hour notice was not given, your employer has 72 hours to pay you. However, if it is unreasonable for your employer to calculate the exact commissions earned within 72 hours of the end of your employment, they must pay your commissions as soon as it is able to be calculated.
